Niove variation! I liked that partial desaturation of the colours.

I love this picture. The fancy iron work in the roof supports really drew my eye. As did the color effect where only the orangy shades are showing.

It is always nice to see ABC posts with people in it, even though they are usually missing from my posts.

I love the photo! How on earth did you manage to keep some selected areas of colour? Or did you shoot in monochrome and add them afterwards? The effect is stunning!

@jay: I'm not sure exactly how I did it - I think it is mainly using the "old newspaper" or "sepia" affect in PaintshopPro as well as some adjustments to brightness, contrast and tone.

A slightly different crop of the original but unaltered in terms of colour can be seen at

Well this is just peachy. That's the colour tints I see. Love the full bin, but the very clean platform. Not a Virgin train was it.

Excellent post! Works great for ABC Wednesday.
The desaturation effect on such a lively picture is great. :)

What an intriguing photo! At first I thought it was black & white, but then noticed some colour. How did you do this???
